Join us as Athena Contus, of Athena’s Bees and Wonalancet Honey Bee Company fame,
regales all with fascinating facts of honey bees and their behavior and biology.
Did you know some bees are dedicated water carriers? Or that individual bees choose to be one?
This will be an entertaining and wonderful discussion of bee life.
This talk will be a brief but fascinating over-view of behaviors unique to family life in the complex super-organism of
a honey bee colony. Stories with images will be shared, accompanied by video clips.

A candidate of the Eastern Apiculture Society Master Beekeeping program, her goals include teaching other beekeepers how to successfully raise northern, disease resistant honey bees.
